The Early-Entry MSRC program leads to completion of all requirements for the BSRT and MSRC degrees in as few as three academic years including summers. In this program, students complete the BSRT requirements and begin graduate coursework in their Senior year. Up to 12 credit hours of graduate work may be double counted for both undergraduate and graduate programs. A student may be accepted at any time after completion of 75 or more hours of undergraduate course work, although it is expected that 90 hours of undergraduate coursework will have been earned by the time the first graduate course is taken. Early-Entry MS students will be expected to complete the requirements for the undergraduate degree by the time they have completed 15 hours of graduate work.
Early-Entry students are charged undergraduate tuition and fees for all courses (graduate and undergraduate) for which they register. Upon completion of the baccalaureate degree, students are charged graduate tuition and fees. NOTE: Students in graduate programs that carry a tuition increment will be charged. However, this fee will be removed after the add/drop deadline
For program eligibility, students must currently be enrolled in the BSRT at UNC Charlotte and should consult with the Undergraduate Program Coordinator and MSRC Graduate Program Director. Students must have at least a cumulative 3.2 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) and in good academic standing in the BSRT program for consideration to enroll in the Early-Entry MSRC program.
The program is 100% online and designed to be flexible for working professionals hoping to continue their education.
